Page count for February: 1,697 (60.61/day)

The list of books read in 2008 struggled its way to 66, I’m aiming for 100 in 2009. That Stephen Pinker book did me in this month, 634 end notes; took me 2 weeks to ingest it all.

2009 totals: 12 books, 3,614 pages, 61.25/day, on pace for 72 books, behind: 4 2/3 books. (If I’m seriously considering reading Don Quiotxe, I’m in big trouble on the 100 books front….)

(And yes, I did a power surge yesterday to finish the month with > 3 books so it wouldn’t look too lame.)

Updated: Forgot I read Seth Godin’s “Tribes”
